This is a simple, and amazing way to get kids all on the same page, literally.
I have created three simple pages. If the red page is up, that means there should be no talking. The yellow page goes up for a whisper (partner reading, small group, literature circles). The green sign goes up if we are having project time, free time, and sometimes large group time.
When I use these signs I just simply post them up front, with out talking I will change them and the students always seem to be watching.
I hope you enjoy this little freebie from Jennifer Hertert!
